Buying in dollars? Unprecedented time now to grab a safari bargain

Living in the USA and hoping to go on safari in 2018?
The weak pound against the dollar offers an amazing opportunity to grab a bargain when booking a safari with us, due to the current exchange rates.
This blip in the exchange rates, is unlikely to last long, indeed the trend is already heading upward, but you can still grab a bargain.

Check out our website, choose you safari and then email Carol to book your safari while the rates are still at an unprecedented low.

This safari aims to prioritise Tiger and Leopard sightings. The National Parks we visits have a high density of both species, as well as a myriad of other mammal, primate and bird life, for you to enjoy.

Ladies only small group safari

Ladies only small group safari
29th April - 8th May 2018 inclusive
Price:  £2,325 pp sharing, £2,740 single

Back by popular demand – We are reintroducing our ladies only small group safari, which is designed to cater specifically for ladies, making it easier to take a safari on your own or with friends.
This group safari is based in the Greater Kruger Park area of South Africa, offering time to enjoy three private game reserves in the region accompanied by Carol Fox (co-founder of On Track Safaris).
And, most importantly, we have been able to secure significant discounts on the standard rates for these private reserves, enabling us to offer this special package at an unbeatable price. 
Our ladies only special safari combines three game reserves within the Greater Kruger National Park, each offering a unique safari experience, enjoying some wonderful game viewing and lodges.
South Africa is by far our most popular location. It is where we started and put down roots and is still the operational base for our award winning safaris, as well as the home of our leopard conservation programs. Each safari helps to fund our leopard and community programs in South Africa.
Carol has been operating and managing safaris in this region for over ten years as well as working with our leopard research program.
“I’m excited to be able to reintroduce our ladies only safaris. I selected the itinerary below to include three of my favorite game reserves and lodges, to offer great value and safari experiences. Whether you are a solo traveller, mother and daughter, or group or friends, this safari offers the confidence of female companionship on an amazing safari. I’m looking forward to welcoming you to Africa.”

WildRivers Leopards

We're gradually building up a picture of the behaviour of leopards on the WildRivers Nature Reserve, Limpopo, South Africa. Our research has been ongoing for the last fourteen months and we still have a long way to go, but we're seeing some very interesting behaviour.
Rukiya Safari Camp on the WildRivers reserve is our safari base, which means our guests get a unique insight into not only the leopard behaviour, but many other predators that we catch on our network of research camera traps. Spotted Hyena, Honey Badger, Civet, Genet, Jackal and of late Wild Dogs!

What are your safari vehicles like?

South Africa - Land Rover 110 at Rukiya Safari Camp
"What type of vehicles do you use on safari?"
It's a very easy one to answer. Mainly because in terms of make and style there are only a small number of 4x4's that are both up to the job and can be readily adapted for game viewing. 
India  - Maruti Suzuki better know as a Gypsy
Of-course open vehicles that have been special adapted for game viewing, are the number one choice.
India - Gypsy also serves as a breakfast bar
And when it does to stopping for breakfast or snacks mid game drive, the vehicle comes in very handy.
South Africa - breakfast in a dry river bed
In South Africa, there is often need for a tracker to assist in finding animals, so a special tracker seat is installed over the front of the vehicle to allow the tracker to well.....read the sign and track!
South Africa - Tracker seat

Stunning safari extension - Darjeeling, India

Our five day Darjeeling extension can be added to any of our safaris and offers a chance to finish your India trip with an relaxing stay at the idyllic Glenburn Tea Estate overlooking the Himalayan mountains. You can explore the plantations and villages within the tea estate, nature and bird walks, overnights in the log cabin by the river Rangeet, picnics in the tea gardens, tea tours and excursions around Darjeeling.

Glenburn is a heavenly plantation retreat that lies on a hillock above the banks of the River Rungeet, high in the Himalayas, overlooked by the mighty Kanchenjunga mountain range.
Started by a Scottish tea company in 1859, Glenburn then passed into the hands of one of India’s pioneering tea planting families, who over the years, come to be known as the “Chaiwala family“ - which literally means “tea planters“. 
The main house is a restored tea planter’s bungalow with 4 attractive suites and a romantic veranda offering exquisite views out to the Himalayas. Tucked below the hill is an additional bungalow with another 4 stunning suites and a cosy sitting room with a log fire. There's pampering service, delicious food and a choice of hikes from an hour to a day. Learn how tea is made, cross the hanging bridge into Sikkim, spot birds and butterflies, roam the estate in a 4x4, or sit and sketch the stunning landscapes. Head off to the stilted lodge, set on a private river, for lamplit dinners, stargazing or trout fishing. You’ll find privacy and inspiration here.
